Re: Tomic on hardcourt 2013
This is very ordinary. Clearly trying to play thru the bad form is not working so some time out will hopefully help. Tomic has stepped up at the events you know mean more to him (Sydney, Aus Open, Wimbledon, Davis Cup) however every single other event he has played shit. So that tells me it is a motivation and concentration thing. Take some time out mate and start fresh in Hopman Cup in January.
Just regarding appearance fee if that was the case, Pat Rafter used to always give back his appearance fee if he thought he did not perform well.. just a fun fact.
